Probably White has a slight edge also after the 14...Kg7 move but in corr chess even bigger advantages are not convertable to a full point. Starting as White against the KID with a safe position that you should win or draw is good news. Not ideal though, i understand.

There is some hope. In otb chess, KID players hate playing for "easy" draws. They want blood.

This is just an idle observation.

Avrukh KID doesn't work?!

Avrukh got everyone re-interested in the old line 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.g3 Bg7 4.Bg2 O-O 5.Nc3 d6 6.Nf3 Nc6 7.O-O a6 8.Qd3!?  which looks really cool and works well as most rabid KID players can't get what they want out this.  But lately everyone plays 8... e5 9.dxe5 dxe5 10.Qxd8 Rxd8 11.Bg5 Re8 12.Rfd1 h6 13.Bxf6 Bxf6 14.Nd2 as per Avrukh the 14...Kg7!? which commits neither to Nd4 nor Be6.  Looks very dull and equal and I found several correspondence games that ended very soon, dull draws.  Since he thought Black equalizes against all other 8 moves isn't this a big problem?  Am I wrong or is his whole line just an easy draw for Black?
